Concert guitarist and recording artist Alice Artzt, whom Guitar International Magazine has called "America's best player," made her solo concert debut in London in 1969. Since then critics in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas have unanimously acclaimed her performances as a soloist and in concertos with orchestra. As a duo and trio, she has also performed widely in Europe, North and South America, and Africa with a number of other well known musicians, among them Harpsichordist Igor Kipnis, British guitarist Raymond Burley, Irish guitarist John Feeley, American guitarist Gregg Nestor, Swiss guitarists Michel Rutscho and Daniel Zimmermann, and Brazilian guitarist Paulo Martelli. She studied guitar with Julian Bream, Ida Presti and Alexandre Lagoya, and composition with Darius Milhaud at Aspen Colorado, and at Columbia University where she got a degree in musicology. Alice Artzt has made 13 solo records (LP or CD), and one with The Alice Artzt Guitar Trio: "American Music of the Stage and Screen". She has written two books on guitar technique: "The Art of Practicing" and "Rhythmic Mastery", as well as many articles on music in various magazines, and has taught for the past 45 years in private lessons and in master classes all over the world. She has appeared on TV and radio throughout the world, and has been on the juries of many international guitar competitions (CAG, GFA, Toronto, Segovia NYU, Rodrigo, and Alessandria). Presently she teaches privately in Princeton NJ
